Simon Brent

Graduate Engineer, Building Services

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with WSP so far, due to the work, the working environment and the people in the office."

I studied Civil & Structural Engineering at Newcastle University, graduating in 2012, and joining WSP in September of the same year. I am now currently at Graduate Engineer level, in the Building Structures department of the WSP Newcastle office.

During my student years I completed a short work placement, through which I gained a spot on the graduate assessment day in London. I honestly feel that the work placement and graduate scheme have been an excellent way to start my career with WSP.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with WSP so far, due to the work, the working environment and the people in the office. The atmosphere is such that  you can ask for help whenever you need it, safe in the knowledge that someone will give you their time. I am currently working in Bangladesh which has provided an excellent opportunity to broaden my experience. The Graduate Development Programme is a great way to meet graduates from other offices, and get an insight into how things work in different parts of the country. The Technical Training is also really useful, and alongside the Graduate Development Programme provides a perfect starting point to a career with WSP.
